Because each child's needs are different, there is no way to know how much your child's treatment will cost.
If your child is covered by private insurance, you must let them know about the cleft lip and palate and your visits to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Center for Craniofacial Disorders. Our staff and your child's doctor's office will help you arrange payment for surgeries and other treatments. However, you must stay in close contact with your insurance company and keep up with records and bills.
If your child is covered by Medicaid, you must stay in close contact with your case worker. When your case worker asks for information, provide it as soon as possible to prevent problems with your coverage.
If your child is not covered by private insurance and is not eligible for Medicaid, please tell your social worker at Children's so he can help you apply for other types of financial help.
